Product, pricing and stock control integration capabilities are key for new concessions
Help for Heroes Trading Limited has opened three concessions at Debenhams stores in Southampton, Basildon and Gloucester, supported by systems from Eurostop. Help for Heroes has integrated its Eurostop e-rmis retail management solution with the Debenhams in-house POS and stock control systems, making trading much easier. Effective two-way communication processes ensure that a single platform for accurate product, pricing and stock information exists across Help for Heroes’ own standalone stores and concessions.
The Help for Heroes stores, which are run by a combination of salaried retail staff and passionate volunteers, sell over 350 branded product lines. Their aim is to raise money as well as increase awareness about the Help for Heroes charity across the UK.
Helen Beebe, Managing Director of Help for Heroes Trading commented; “The Eurostop system supports a fully functional retail operation. We’ve seen tangible benefits, particularly with the e-rmis and warehouse management system which has significantly improved the level of our sales and stock information. Opening concessions in leading Debenhams locations is very exciting for us and having the technology to support this ensures that we are able to maximise the opportunity with streamlined stock management.”
Help for Heroes product, stock and pricing information is uploaded directly from Eurostop to the Debenhams system and presented as available items in the Debenhams in-house POS software. Sales are rung through the Debenhams till-points in store and sales data is sent back to the Eurostop system in a two way integration that ensures data integrity across all Help for Heroes’ operations.
Phillip Moylan, Sales and Marketing Manager at Eurostop added, “We’re thrilled that our systems are making such a difference at this wonderful organisation. While accurate information, instant reporting features and integration capabilities are very important for all retailers, Help for Heroes Trading has benefited from the ability to react to new opportunities quickly and efficiently. Concessions in key locations with a leading retailer like Debenhams will ensure that Help for Heroes is able to increase its profile and raise funds to provide much needed services for our brave servicemen and women.”
NOTES TO EDITORS
About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK which will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won’t let them battle alone.
At the same time as the Charity was launched, Bryn and Emma launched Help for Heroes Trading Limited. Today, Help for Heroes Trading has over 350 product lines. The Trading Company exists to help raise awareness of the charity and to help offset the running costs of the charity ensuring as much of the hard earned donations as possible go to where they can help those injured in the line of duty.
